Everything was just perfect!
Excellent location -very close to town center and harbor. Bus stops are nearby. Very nice house outside and inside. I had a lovely cosy & clean en suite room on the back side so was very quiet. In the room is everything you need (tea/coffe making facilities +tea bags, coffee and even hot chocolate , bisquits, bottled water,) besides TV set with many channels, alarm-clock and hairdryer. Owners –June & Carl are just great, friendly, hospitable and so helpful. They serve very good English breakfast or something light – cereals, yogurts, fruits. The choice is yours. Everything is very tasty. Thank you once again for the fantastic stay!
I would recommend Kingsholm to everybody!

This is the second time we have visited this excellent Hotel and will be visiting again in 2012.
Great food, great accommodation, good location and wonderful ambience cannot praise enough.
We have visited Torquay several times over the years and no other hotel has come anywhere near the Kingsholm.
